Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Response [ Time Frame: 7-14 days following end of antibiotic treatment ]

    Clinical Response: Categorical (Cured, Failed or Indeterminate)

    • Failure - at least one of the following:
    • Persistence or progression of signs and symptoms of pneumonia that still require antibiotic therapy
    • Termination of study med due to "lack of efficacy"
    • Death on or after Day 3 attributable to primary infection
    • Cure: Signs and symptoms of pneumonia improved to the point that no further antibiotics for pneumonia were required, and baseline radiographic findings improved or did not progress.
    • Indeterminate: Inability to determine outcome
